Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    The village of Bowness-on-Solway marks the western end of Hadrian’s Wall. Situated within the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the village also marks the start/finish of the Hadrian’s Wall Path national trail. The sand dunes, salt marsh, and shingle bed of the coastline at Bowness is home to lots of wildlife. Keep a look-out for birds including: golden and grey plover, bar-tailed and black-tailed godwit, dunlin, redshank, lapwing, knot, and turnstone.
